Compassionate Care for Fecal Incontinence in Encino
Fecal incontinence is the inability to control bowel movements, causing stool (feces) to leak unexpectedly from the rectum. Also called bowel incontinence, fecal incontinence ranges from occasional leakage of stool while passing gas to complete loss of bowel control. Common causes of fecal incontinence include diarrhea, constipation and muscle or nerve damage, which may be associated with aging or with giving birth. Our surgeons are specialty-trained to diagnose and treat fecal incontinence.
Valley Colorectal Surgeons use anorectal manometry, sphincter EMG evaluation, anal ultrasound and rectal sensation testing to determine which fecal incontinence treatment is best suited for you. They also offer therapies such as diet modification, biofeedback, physical therapy, sphincter repair and other fecal incontinence treatments.
